|Greg LoPiccolo grew up in Vermont, moved to Boston and started a
rock band, then drifted sideways into computer gaming by way of System
Shock. He has a wife, a red pickup truck and a small insane child. He's
really into stealth and treachery, but doesn't know very much about orcs
and such. Should he?
working with Paul N, Dan S, and World Class Air Conditioning Unit Jon
Maiara on a game featuring a friendly troll who called you Rodriguez,
Doug Church worked on two sequels, one of which had a different name and no
player attribute stats, and was thus a Doom clone, not an RPG. Following
that, some typing on Flight was done (remember hoop courses, anyone?
thought not). After some thinking and such, he got involved in Dark, which
he likes to think will be like pinball, involving lots of panic and chaos
and occasional deliberate actions.

is currently on sabbatical from her
ranch in Montana, where she breeds free-range wicker lawn furniture.
Anyone who buys a copy of Dark will be invited out for the Hammock Rodeo
and Bamboo B-B-Q next summer. Really, though, her current life's ambition
is to someday read an article on Usenet that exhorts people to listen for
the conversation about the bears.

was kidnapped from a
muffler-clamp-assembling factory and dragged into the office by a roving
band of Mamlukes. We bought him for some blankets, three copper pots, and
a Mac version of "System Shock". Now we've chained him to a Pentium and
feed him coffee and cinnamon rolls. And we sometimes let him play with his
pet gravy boat "Horace". If he behaves.
Physics & Game Systems
has been a game designer with Looking
Glass since 1992. If you looked at the list of ingredients printed on the
side of his life, it would read as follows: ultimate frisbee; tabletop
RPG's; computer games; hiking; trading-card games; real baseball; fantasy
baseball; SportsCenter; live-action RPG's; board games. May also contain
one or more of the following: food, sleep.
Storytelling, Game & Mission
Jenkins is the spunky star of "Blossom".
Creature Animation & Rendering
LeBlanc became an acolyte in the Cult of
Infocom when he was fifteen. At eighteen, he began his pilgrimage to MIT, where he learned the Secret Arts
of the Implementors. Years later, he emerged as a Master of Science
and a Master
Assassin. Now he spends many late nights in his laboratory on CambridgePark
drive, amidst the ruins of Infocom's great citadel. There he stirs the
murky cauldrons of Game Design, incants the arcane language of the
Programmers, and plots his eventual world domination.
System Architecture, Object Database,
Leonard was the co-host of "Live with
Tom and Kathie Lee" for three years before he freaked out one day and
called Dr. Joyce Brothers "Stink-Breath" on the air. He was fired the next
day, replaced by some upstart, and after two years of heavy drinking began
teaching himself to code. Years later he began working at Looking Glass,
where he hopes to put his past behind him.
|As he grew up, Mark Lizotte was always drawing and painting strange, fantastic
images -- causing his family no end of worry that he would ever find a
respectable career. Luckily the video game industry came along. Boy! are
is a shaggy animal with blue slitted
eyes which lives under the desk in the corner. We throw it pieces of
sandwiches and Snickers bars, but we don't get our hands too close. From
what we can tell it just showed up one day, and we kept it because it
seems to know x86 assembly, and the smell isn't too bad once you
get used to it.
Rendering/Special Effects Programmer
was lost on a spelunking expedition in
Guatemala in 1975. For ten years, he was raised by bats. From these
insect-eating flying mammals, he learned to develop a powerful sense of
sonar which he now puts to use in his work on
Thief The Dark Project
|Randy "Six Shells
Randy was trained from toddlership to be silent and rarely seen. With deft, instantaneous motions, he can appear and possess your screen with a whirling, green blur. He pops balloons and casts them adrift without consideration or delay. He loves dessert and has a cybernetic appendage with which he can upload his psyche to commune with the "devil contraptions" (aka computers). He prefers to run sideways and can often be seen eating chicken for health.
AI Scripting & Game
got his education in a variety of things
at MIT, the setting of the classic
Infocom adventure game The Lurking Horror. Like that game he
was influenced by the work of H.P. Lovecraft. Tim has been at Looking Glass
since the beginning, but the last game he stayed with until it was
finished was System Shock, back in 1994. Thief
is going to be the next one if it kills him.

colored objects. He also likes jokes about monkeys and slacks.
Cutscene Art & Animation, Product
foolishly migrated to Boston in order to
attend MIT, whereupon she discovered that they didn't offer majors in
either interstellar conquest or world domination. She is now enrolled in
High Ismperian Fzzth'garst II's Rule The Universe In 180
Septums Or Less Correspondence CourseTM, and spends most
of her time in training simulations. Working at Looking Glass "just pays
the postage, and the extra practice doesn't hurt either."
